1866-70 1 Jaun Bazaar Road, Calcutta
 
Awarded gold medal for the best series of ten portraits at the Bengal Photographic Society Exhibition of 1865 (Photographic News, 6 October 1865, p. 470). Served on Committee of the Bengal Photographic Society, 1865-66.
 
At the Society’s meeting of 26 January 1863, it was announced that ‘A Photographic Gallery has also been established on the ground floor of Mr Schwarzschild’s house, no. 33/4 Chowringhee. The use of the room has been obtained at the lw rent of Rs. 25 per month, and it is hoped that working members will occasionally exhibit there. Screens have been put up for the purpose.’[1] >br> 
He was evidently a new arrival in India in 1863, since in discussing a point of photographic technique, Josiah Rowe stated that Schwarzschild would accept his argument ‘when he had been in the country in the hot weather’.[2]
